'Fruit Punch' is a hybrid of 'Urajiro Hachijo' x 'Crested Surf', .originated by Don Dean. It was an impulse buy in 2015 and I grew it in a pot all season. Leaves emerge yellow changing to greenish yellow and finally light green; lightly folded, intensely wavy, lightly corrugated, broadly ovate; plant pie crusted with cherry coloured scapes. I was attracted to a very faint pink edge to the leaves. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.
